6 Jul Tribute to Ghalib Jonker

Former Saudi Gazette and Independent media journalist Ghalib Jonker passed this week and was laid to rest on Tuesday morning. Ghalib, an Afrikaans revert, was indeed a colourful character. VOC Drive Time's Shafiq Morton spoke to those who knew him well in his career, Mugamad Jacobs, a senior layout sub editor at Cape Times, who worked closely with Ghalib during his time at Independent media, as well as Muslim Views editor Farid Sayed, who first got to know him as a trade union organiser in the 1980’s.
